64 THM Electric Kickdown switch connections: only two at linkage, or more at Tranny?

Hello all.

As I reported in a prior post, I got my car back from the shop and now have a part throttle kickdown. Great! However, either by coincidence or by oversight I now no longer have a Full throttle kickdown (which I used to have after I replaced the switch on the linkage). So, I checked the connections on the linkage and they appear to be good. What I am wondering is whether there are other electrical connectors at the transmission, which may have been disconnected during the repair and not re-attached. I don't have a lift so I cannot check (other than doing it the "Brooklyn way" by driving the car half way in to the street in the driveway and crawling under -which I will do if I have to. 

So, anybody know if there are other connections at the tranny? There does not appear to be a fuse on that line.

(Yes, I do plan to test the switch  with a test light but have not done that yet because it worked fine before I dropped the car off). 

Thanks

Norm

The white wire from kick down switch goes to transmission connector. Trace it back to transmission connector and make sure it is attached and no breaks in wire.

Thanks. Approximately where on the tranny does it connect? Near the Modulator or somewhere else.

Noted with appreciation. 

I just always  love the pictures with circles and arrows for clarity

Enjoy 

Occam's Razor rules the day: It was a bad kick down switch on the linkage. Shoulda checked it first but it was working just a week ago. 

Thanks for all responses, I learned something anyway.

V.I.N. where?

Posted by Robert Pellow on April 18, 2021 at 1:41pm 6 Comments

Where can I find the V.I.N. on a 63 convertible?  The usual space at the base of the interior windshield on the driver's side has been decimated by weather.

63 Trunk detail

Posted by Bob Pontius on April 8, 2021 at 3:07pm 1 Comment

Jason, I liked the detail and information you have provided. I would like to do mine similar to yours. Can you help? Do you have trunk material? OPGI is sending the trunk product for my 63 Fleetwood. But it does cover the entire trunk as yours was done. If you do not have can you give me a reference? Thanks!! Bob

Car lift and jack stands

Posted by Les Eastling on March 23, 2021 at 10:00am 4 Comments

I mentioned during the 63/64 chapter zoom meeting on 3/21 that we had installed a car lift in our garage. Someone asked what kind and I didn't have the info at hand, so here is a link to it and also a link to some tall jack stands we use to add more stability to the car and an additional safety factor. There is something about getting underneath one of these cars that makes me a little nervous! …
